Silicon Valley Central Chamber of Commerce launches regional search for new President and CEO
Board member Christian Pellecchia stepping in to oversee day-to-day operations until position is filled
June 3, 2020, Santa Clara, CA – Santa Clara-based Silicon Valley Central Chamber of Commerce (SVCCC) announced Christian Pellecchia, a current board member, will step in and oversee the daily operations of the chamber beginning June 10th, while remaining a board member. Pellecchia, VP of Operations for Slatter Construction, was appointed by the executive committee of the chamber’s board of directors. Pellecchia, along with the board, will oversee operations until the recruitment process for a permanent replacement is complete. This will ensure continuity and help facilitate operations continuing to run smoothly.
 “Christian is a respected and experienced business leader in the community,” said SVCCC board member Ravinder LaL. “He is an excellent choice to oversee daily operations, giving us additional time to ensure we select the right person for the permanent role.”
Nick Kaspar, who worked for the chamber as President and CEO for the past three years, developed and implemented economic development initiatives, created new programs for the future workforce, and rewrote the chamber bylaws and policy manual among other executive functions. He will remain involved with the chamber during his transition into a new position with the City of San Jose.
“The SV Central Chamber is an incredible organization and I am happy that I was able to be a part of supporting and growing so many businesses,” said Kaspar. “I am very excited for my new role as Chief of Staff for Councilmember Esparza, but I will always appreciate and support the Chamber.”
The board is currently searching for a permanent President and CEO. Candidates interested in applying for the open position with the chamber, should email a cover letter and resume to president.search@svcentralchamber.com.
